Live music makes me feel emotional, alive and thankful.

My favourite live music experience would have to be when I joined Music in Hospitals & Care musicians in the adult acute mental health wards at Gartnavel Royal Hospital in Glasgow. It was incredibly powerful seeing live music visibly relax the patients and transform the space for the staff who were there.

Barbara Osborne

Chief Executive

Live music makes me feel animated, euphoric and present.

My favourite live music experience would have to be Music in Hospitals & Care musicians A4 Brass Quartet at Lancasterian School in Manchester. It was amazing to see how the group of multi-sensory impaired children interacted with the instruments and used new signals they had learnt to request changes in the tempo or volume.

Communications and Engagement Officer

Live music makes me feel hopeful, inspired and alive.

My favourite live music experience would have to be the celebrated 1995 revival of Steven Sondheim’s ‘A Little Night Music’. I was lucky enough to see Dame Judi Dench sing ‘Send in the Clowns’ and it was perfection – such a beautifully heartfelt performance. I’ve loved Sondheim ever since.

Live music makes me feel alive, emotional and invigorated.

My favourite live music experience would have to be when I went with a Music in Hospitals & Care musician to The Meath Epilepsy Charity’s Skills Centre. It was great to see residents and staff fully participating in the session. Seeing their smiling faces and movement to the beat of the music was definite proof of the healing power of music.

Dan Remedios

Head of Finance and Resources

Live music makes me feel connected, emotional and immersed.

My favourite live music experience would have to be when I saw The Buzzcocks in a small independent venue in Oxford. It is one of the first times I remember going to see live music – I was near the front and completely taken in by the whole experience.

Emily Honey

Head of Fundraising and Communications

Live music makes me feel alive, connected and united.

My favourite live music experience would have to be Daft Punk at Hyde Park in 2007 – they played an incredible set and the crowd were so energised and joyful. Daft Punk didn’t perform live very often throughout their career, so it really felt like being part of a special moment.

Ria Farrell

Executive Assistant

Live music makes me feel energised, alive and peaceful.

I once won tickets to a Children in Need Live concert at the Royal Albert Hall. There were many big names including Paul McCartney. It was the first live music experience my son had been to and the best thing was seeing his joy and amazement that we were actually there in person.
